|The two-headed daylily is amazing! |
We have ajugas all over the place, and a couple of years ago, one produced a variegated sport. Unfortunately, it never happened again.

|I guess when anyone finds one---they need to take the time to try and propagate the "sport".|
Somewhere I have read that some of the "sports" are due to virus.
Has that come up in your reading?

|I loved this tidbit of information, really gets my mind to thinking. We have sports within the sempervivum plants, one of them is S. 'Oddity' with odd shaped leaves, and another is S. 'New Rhumba' with variegated leaves.|

|Many of the popular hostas are sports from a mother plant.|

I was interested when some one on the sempervivum forum questioned their plant, so I had to go out and find out
what "sport" meant. It causes such unique and interesting plants.
I hope all of us will send a tip when we run into terms that could be added to the glossary.
Dave is planning to implement one when we have enough data. Thanks to all who helped make my tip worthy of discussion.
